    I've been on vacation and then battling hurricane Dennis for the last two weeks. I just checked rankings and most of my keywords for wakulla.com showed up.

    I'm just wondering if Yahoo has decided that I'm not a scum SE spammer after all or if this is a fluke.

    Is anyone else seeing a change in Y rankings?

    -jay

    P.S. (Warning: shameless self promotion) Check out some of the hurricane photos from the storm at the SE spam site www.wakulla.com

    Glad you made it in again. Keep your rankings and up:)

    So I guess while you were on holiday you didn'y check anything like PR etc.

    Could to much checking with programs like that one from DP trigger a filter or confuse their algo? - Slowly I start to believe that.
    Anyone thoughts on that?

    Seeing some (small) changes for the better here now..
    I've been waaaaaay down the SERPS for all of my keywords for a couple of months now, but today I discovered that I'm #1 for my sites title (from the Yahoo directory), and #2 for my sites name..
    It's a start, since I was nowhere to be found for those two searches a couple of days ago.. :)

    From my observations re SERPS placement, it seems Yahoo is testing something, or just trying to annoy me: On June 21st, my rankings all declined considerably, but still had some ranking KW - then, two weeks ago, I've been dropped across board with 5 sites on one day, two days later all pages re-appeared, then dropped completely again until yesterday, when all my rankings improved to a level where they've never been before. Visitors from Y have been 0 in the last weeks, today they're sending more visitors than Google and it seems we can't handle all sales this generates :confused:

    It should perhaps be said that during the time when my sites were not ranked, Y showed for most search terms complete crap sites, most of them with scrapped, non-functional content and the rest partially totally unrelated (yes, I may be opinionated, but really, what do Ringtones and two gambling sites have to do in the top ten for MP3 Player-related search terms???). This seems to be happening for Yahoo Germany, UK and US at the same time.

    16 visitors so far this month and one low ranking keyword page appears on top again. Shall I laugh or cry now?

    Hey folks,
    Is YSlurp crawls your sites as regular? It's crawls mine. I think in case that we was banned it should not happened.

    What you think about it?

    I'm also bouncing to and from infinity at Y!. Two of my terms shot up pretty quickly, but have now gone back to infinity, another two newly targetted bounced from infinity to within the top 100, and I'll be watching to see if they also drop way back in next week or two.

    This is a link of a Yahoo company, represented in many countries. Could this be the answer of their mess? Or have I missed something for a long time?

    It's here

    Well, one thing is that Yahoo is on restructuring trip of their services, concentrating on other services and neglecting the search, though today many found their way back to the top.

    Hopefully that this is not just temporary.

    It's obvious for me that Y tries to hook visitors away from search and wants that people become more involved with their payed services (to bind everyone closer to their business). Might be a niche for them but if that will be appreciated by most common searchers is another question.

    I still believe that they should stick with what they began and improve it, because that is what people are expecting.

    I haven't noticed this service (http://www.kelkoo.co.uk/) before and that it is only for Europe, where Google has the main share of searchers. I personally don't think that people will change to this kind of Y services even they are good in itself.

    I agree that Yahoo does seem to be more focused on making money.

    Thanks for the explaination. It makes sense.

    BTW my community site just fell out of the SERPS last night. Looks like they are still working on the algorithm.

    dropped from 10 to mid-twenties for my top keyword. Can't really complain though, I always thought I was too high, too early.
